Probe light flashing, oven won't bake.

I have a GE JGB900 series range and the "probe" and "bake" lights are flashing and the oven won't start up. We don't have the probe and have never used it.

Open oven door,
Plug in probe,
Lay probe inside oven,
Set probe temp to 100,
Start the Bake cycle.

Target probe temp will hit 100 in minutes,
Open door,
Take out Probe.
Your done - solved!

I think this started when I accidently tapped Probe when setting up the Bake cycle. With no Probe cancel, the probe cycle must complete. So that’s what we do.

Solution time 7 minutes

    No new probe needed. Properly functioning probe is what solves this problem. Do as indicated above, and the issue is solved. Completely solved

SOURCE: just installed new control panel

Normally the bake/probe flashing happens when you plug in the probe. If you don't have the probe plugged in, then double check that your wiring connectors are plugged in properly on your new board or that the wires to the probe connector are not shorted. Make sure that the probe is plugged in all the way. Unscrew the retaining nut, then unscrew the two sheet metal screws holding the housing in place, then give the probe connection a gentle tug to ensure that it is still properly connected.

Oven won't heat.


Good Afternoon Gwen - Try reprogramming the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. If issue persists, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC (electronic oven control), sensor probe and/or faulty bake or broil element. I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

Probe and bake is blinking onmy ge oven how do I stop it ?


I had the same problem today (my wife overflowed a pot of chicken stock last night, so there was liquid all over the cook-top, and some probably got down behind the control pannel). Based on the solution to a problem that seemed similar, though definitely not as exact as your description, I checked the probe connection (unscrewed the retaining nut, then unscrewed the two sheet metal screws holding the housing in place, then gave the probe connection a gentle tug to ensure that it was still properly connected). Finding nothing wrong, I replaced the housing and retaining nut, and the lights were no longer flashing.

Try this..
thanks for rating good luck

Re.probe and bake


I had the same problem and pulled off the contorl panel and removed the ribbion looking thing. You might have to do this a few times and wiggle it a little. It took me about 4 trys to get it to stop. also you can lock the control panel and the beeping will stop...this was my temp fix until I figured out how to get the control panel off and what to do.

GE Profile XL44 range


I think it's the ignitor.   Ours has been doing a very slow lighting for quite a while.  I found if I did a cleaning cycle it seems to work a little better... otherwise a new ignitor  ( Ours is gas )...  now it is flashing the probe and bake lights alternately and will not turn the oven on at all....  not so impressed at this point.....

Range problem


the control bord may be bad or the receptical where the probe connects may be bad and grounding out agenst the body of the oven. I would remove the plug and make sure the wires are good and its not grounding out. If it checks out ok replacement of the control bord should solve the problem
